Product description

Since 2003, Alain Chavy has presided over some 10 hectares of vines, principally in Puligny-Montrachet and, today, entirely planted to Chardonnay. Farming is conventional, but Chavy has foresworn herbicides since 2009. He harvests early, vinifying in barrels from Damy and Chassin (including some larger-format barrels) and maturing the wines in wood for the better part of a year. Before the harvest, they're racked to tank, fined in November, filtered in January and bottled in February with around 40 parts per million free sulfur dioxide—using Diam for the lower appellations and corks from Trescases for the higher appellations. Easygoing and expressive, these are open, approachable wines with plenty of commercial appeal, though one might wish for more concentration and structure in bottlings from such celebrated appellations.
